Not sure whether this is he place to post, or New packages but:
Installing Blender (3D) from v6 repos installed many many packages including extra gnome, epiphany,google gadgets,compiz stuff, etc etc, loads of..which I dont really want. Usually I only need to add open exr as a dependancy. Normally I build from svn, but tried repo pkg as test.
Also openoffice icons dont show in desktop menu, Kompozer icon missing too (showed in development in 5.9).
VL6 looking good, using rc1 as main system now.
